It's the fifth edition of the yearly, month-long online competition for HTML5 game developers, and I hope it will keep the tradition of being bigger and better than the previous ones.
I've created and open sourced Enclave Games' starter template for building HTML5 games with Phaser and I hope you can use it in your next gamedev project.
I had the pleasure of visiting my home town and speaking at the local meet.js Lublin meetup - on September 3rd I gave a talk about the Gamepad API.
I wanted to complete a full year with One Game a Month challenge, but I failed miserably in January, so I’m just trying to finish some of the games I started half a year ago or so. The last time it was Monser Wants Candy – started in October 2013, finished in July 2014. Now’s the time for Hungry Fridge – started in November 2013, finished… right now.
I decided to have a monthly reports about all the Enclave-related activities. It won’t be an income report as this aspect is still a work-in-progress – I mean, most of my projects are free, open sourced and targeted to deliver value to the community, but I’ll have to work on making money out of it somehow. Anyway, here’s what happened in February:
Here’s the spontaneous work I did today, a single page targeted especially for the new HTML5 game developers that are looking for a list of places they should visit to start and to be up-to-date with HTML5 game development:
Time to start blogging! As you can see it’s just the bare minimum – an Octopress instance with the Classic Light theme. I wanted to have this blog prettier, but hell – too many times I didn’t start something because it wasn’t 100% ready and after some time it died and never saw the light. So here I am, braking my own rules, having “just the basics”. You can say whatever you like, I’m just going to focus on the content and hopefully at some point I’ll have a shiny, original and beautiful blog with everything just as I wanted.
The guys from Clay.io (supporters of the first js13kGames competition) have started their own compo for students that are (or want to be) also an HTML5 game developers. There's over $10,000 in prizes, so it's a good idea to check it out, learn making games and actually finish one.
